Bengals placed WR Marvin Jones on injured reserve with a foot/ankle issue, ending his season.

Jones visited a specialist on Tuesday, and apparently didn't get the news he needed. He's expected to undergo surgery. Jones has been dealing with left foot/ankle issues since the beginning of training camp, first spraining his ankle before breaking his foot. He was expected to make his 2014 debut in Week 5 before re-injuring his ankle. With A.J. Green (toe) also ailing, the Bengals simply couldn't wait around for Jones to get healthy. Still only 24, Jones is signed through 2015. He emerged as a big-play and red-zone threat in 2013, and is worth keeping around in Dynasty leagues.

Marvin Jones (ankle) is going to North Carolina to meet with a specialist.

Jones is presumably going to see Dr. Robert Anderson as he can't get over the hump with his foot/ankle issues. It seems like surgery is very much in play at this point. Jones can be dropped in all standard re-draft formats.

The Bengals aren't seeing "any progress" with Marvin Jones' foot/ankle issue.

The blunt assessment from coach Marvin Lewis could be an indication that injured reserve is in Jones' future. At the very least, he can be safely ruled out for Week 7.

There is some talk that Marvin Jones may need foot/ankle surgery.

Jones hasn't been healthy in nearly a year as he's battled repeated aggravations. The Bengals may want to save him from himself and get the joint repaired surgically. With A.J. Green (toe) also expected out for Week 7, we're going to see a lot of Mohamed Sanu again. Jones can be dropped in all re-draft formats.

Marvin Jones (ankle) has been officially ruled out for Week 6.

Jones was set to make his season debut last week, but injured his ankle minutes into his first practice of the season. He has not practiced since. Mohamed Sanu, Dane Sanzenbacher and Brandon Tate will be the Bengals' top-three receivers against Carolina.

Marvin Jones (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Week 6.

Despite the optimistic "Q" tag, Jones is expected to be inactive versus Carolina.

Marvin Jones (ankle) remained out of Bengals practice Thursday.

Jones isn't going to suit up for Week 6, leaving Mohamed Sanu as the Bengals "No. 1 receiver" in the absence of A.J. Green (toe). Cincinnati is going to run the ball all day long against the Panthers. Jones is week to week.

Marvin Jones (DNP, foot) came to practice in sweats and gym shoes Wednesday.

The suggestion is that Jones' aggravated foot injury isn't particularly close. It doesn't sound like he has a realistic shot to play against the Panthers Sunday, which means he's missing a monster opportunity. A.J. Green (toe) is almost certainly out. The Bengals top-three receivers will likely be Mohamed Sanu, Brandon Tate and Dane Sanzenbacher.

Marvin Jones (ankle) is not practicing Wednesday.

Jones has been sidelined since he suffered a setback with his ankle last week. He should be considered questionable for Week 6.

Marvin Jones (ankle) is inactive for Sunday night's Week 5 game against the Patriots.

Jones was on track to make his debut this week, but suffered a setback with his ankle on Wednesday. Mohamed Sanu will start opposite A.J. Green in two-wide sets. The rest of the Bengals inactives are LB Vontaze Burfict, RB Rex Burkhead, DL Brandon Thompson, OL Kevin Zietler, DB Chris Lewis-Harris, and DL Will Clarke.

Marvin Jones (ankle, doubtful) missed Bengals practice again Friday.

Look for Mohamed Sanu in the No. 2 wideout role against New England.

Marvin Jones (ankle) was held out of Bengals practice Thursday.

Just like that, Jones appears poised to miss another game after returning from his broken foot. If Jones indeed ends up sitting, Mohamed Sanu will remain the Bengals' No. 2 receiver opposite A.J. Green against the Patriots' stout pass defense.

Marvin Jones tweaked his ankle on Wednesday and was listed as "DNP."

Jones can't catch a break. After missing all of the offseason program with an ankle injury, Jones returned to training camp for all of one practice before breaking his foot. In his first official practice back from the broken foot on Wednesday, Jones hurts his ankle. He was initially expected to make his season debut this week against New England, but now Jones' status is up in the air.

Marvin Jones (foot) is expected to make his 2014 debut in Sunday night's game at New England.

We'd keep expectations in check initially as Jones practiced a grand total of one time during the offseason program and training camp. But based on talent alone, he'll pass up Mohamed Sanu quickly for outside receiving duties and become a major red-zone threat. Jones posted a 51-712-10 line last year despite playing on just 50.0 percent of the snaps. "Oh yes, I can't wait," OC Hue Jackson said when asked about Jones' return. "He can run and catch. Not only does he take the top off, he scores a lot of touchdowns, too."
